a DJ to rock out during the  Color Run! and will end with a Rock Wall challenge, so you don’t want to miss it!
By the end of the  Color Run!, you will be covered in an awesome mix of colors from head to toe!

*Lakeview Park requires key fob access, so be sure to bring it. Don't have a key fob? Stop by the Residents' Central during office hours to get yours. Office hours are Wednesdays and Fridays, 1- 6 pm.
The Color Fun Run! is an untimed event. At each marker, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder. Participants wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color. Once the race is over, the fun continues at the finish line with a Rock Wall Challenge.
Everyone is welcome to participate.  With no winners or official times, The Color Run! caters to everyone— first time runners to seasoned athletes. If you come and had fun, you're a winner!
Removing powdered paint from skin and hair:
Wondering how to get color powder off of your skin and hair after the run? Follow these instructions:
  • Dust off or blow off as much powdered paint as possible before you jump in the car or plop down on your white sofa!
  • Color powder washes right out! Just take a shower, grab a bar of soap and some shampoo and you should be set! Dawn dishwashing soap works well to wash out the colored paint – it seems to do the trick on washing it out of skin too.
  • If you have light colored hair – sometimes the colors can have a little bit more staying power! It will wash out in a few days. We say wear it loud and proud! But if you have prom the next day and you don’t want blue streaks in your hair, then you may want to wear a hat or try oiling your hair with Coconut oil before the race.
How to clean up powdered paint from your clothing:
Wondering how to get color powder off of your skin after the run? It’s nothing a tumble through the washing machine won’t take care of! Color Powder washes out of most clothing but, just in case leave your favorite running clothes or evening dress at home.
Dust off or blow off as much powder as possible before washing. You may want to wash your color branded gear separately in cold water. If it doesn’t wash out the first time, don’t put it in the dryer and try some stain remover or bleach (white clothes only) the second time around.
